All of our guided adventures start in Vang, if not otherwise agreed.
Vang is located in the middle of southern Norway, easily accessible from either Bergen or Oslo. The mountain roads Sognefjellsvegen and Valdresflye are perfect entry points to Vang. The roads are closed from November to April due to snow. Road E16 over Filefjell is another alternative, being open all year round. Check the National Tourist Routes in Norway to ensure the roads are open, especially if there are harsh conditions.
There is no train leading directly to Vang, but you can take the Dovrebanen line to Otta. From Otta you can rent a car with Hertz. Nabobil is always an option for getting around in Norway as well, if you have a scandinavian drivers licence. Be sure to add the discount code “outtt” to save NOK 250,- on your rental.
From Oslo, take Valdresekspressen. The journey from Oslo to Vang takes around 4 hours. Note that some of the journeys have a bus change at Fagernes. From Bergen, the journey is a direct 4-hour trip. The bus leaves from Bergen central bus station once a day.
